The seventh time was the lucky one for the Denver Community Schools in northeast Iowa last night (Tuesday). A two-point-one million dollar school bond issue to build a middle school addition was approved by voters, by a 62-to-38 percent margin.

He says that seemed to be the thing that turned voters in favor of the project.
